Sorry to hear that Carly. I have a pretty strong ocd myself, but thanks God i Am finding my way to rehab. Have You consider therapy + meds? I know ocd can be treated Only with meds, but the most efficient responses come with its coniugation with therapy as far as i researched.

Katie, i use sertraline and do cognitive-behavioral therapy. This line of therapy is the most indicated in terms of effects to treat ocd. I find it very very good. Actually, i can say i Am amazed with it.
